dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking a moment to get to know us. We cannot express how much it means to us that you are considering an adoption plan. If you choose us, we will view every day with your child as a blessing and make every moment together meaningful.
As a family, we value faith, education, and standing up for what’s right in the world. We want to expose our child to as much culture and as many experiences in this world as possible. The children’s museum and local parks are some of the places we want to visit to nurture learning and growth. We can’t wait to cuddle up at night and read a bedtime story before our child goes to bed. Playing board games like Sorry and Chutes and Ladders might get a little competitive but all in good fun! We cannot claim to be master chefs, but we are excited to make pancakes together for breakfast and a bowl of popcorn for movie nights.
We can only imagine how difficult it must be to choose which couple you want to entrust your child with. Know that we promise we will provide the life you are dreaming of for your child: a life filled with enrichment, love, laughter, and growing up to be the best version of themselves possible.

Hello! We are Selby and Joshua. We have been together for seven years, happily married for two. Selby is a lawyer working at a university, where he protects the rights of students and faculty. Joshua can’t wait to be a stay at home dad, teacher and playmate. Selby provides emotional support and encouragement. He is very organized and keeps our lives and schedules on track. Joshua has a gift of making even mundane tasks fun, which helps us to create great family memories together. We are huge Disney fans and enjoy spending time together watching animated movies and TV shows. Our home has no shortage of love and laughter!
Our Home & Pets
We own a two-story house in suburban North Carolina. When we were deciding which house to purchase, we knew we wanted extra rooms for our family to be able to grow. There are four bedrooms and a large open downstairs so one of us can be cooking dinner and still engage with the family in the living room. There is more than enough space to play hide and seek! Our dog is a 12-year-old beagle named Miss Kitty; she adores playing with kids as much as we do. The cul-de-sac we live in has several other young couples with newborn children. Our area has many public parks and museums. We look forward to many movie nights in and adventures out on the town as a family.
Our Extended Family
Together we have two sisters, one brother, and four nieces and nephews. We are fortunate to have our parents nearby. We both grew up in households where the value of family was placed in the forefront. With our large family, the child we are blessed with will be surrounded with an abundance of love.
Joshua’s parents look forward to another child to take on trips to the beach and making arts and crafts. Joshua’s father owned a pizza shop and now regularly invites the kids to help him in the kitchen. It usually makes more of a mess than it does edible pizzas, but they sure do have a blast with Poppop. Our nieces and nephews are constantly asking their grandmother to make their favorite pies for dessert. Mommom usually makes multiple so everyone is satisfied!
The holiday season doesn’t end with Christmas. As a multiracial couple, we celebrate Lunar New Year and other Chinese traditions. There are some fun activities associated with good fortune, such as rolling oranges over the threshold, exchanging red envelopes, and eating a big meal with the extended family. This will be Selby’s parents’ first grandkid, and they are especially excited to babysit and read bedtime stories.
What Led Us To Adoption
From the very beginning of our relationship, we have talked about when the time was right, we wanted to welcome a child into our family. There has never been any doubt that adoption was the path we wanted to take to add a child to our family. We have friends who have gone through the adoption process, so we have witnessed firsthand their joy as their homes grew. We cannot wait to shower a baby with love and watch them grow into a well-balanced adult.

Choose a Family for
Your Baby With Confidence
As you browse our list of hopeful adoptive parents, you can feel confident in knowing that all of the adoptive families working with Angel Adoption are prepared to offer your baby a safe, stable, and loving environment along with a wealth of opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life.
Each adoptive parent has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. A completed home study means the family is emotionally, physically, and financially ready to adopt a baby.
The home study process includes assessments of each parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!Return to Waiting Families
